Who We Are & What We Do

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The Valley Forge Black Pots is the southeastern Pennsylvania chapter of the International Dutch Oven Society. Our objective is to share our fascination (some would say addiction) with cooking outdoors using cast iron Dutch Ovens.

We use a combination of historic tools and modern recipes and ingredients to keep the tradition of outdoor Dutch Oven cooking alive.  We are comprised of cooks of various ages and skill levels who learn from each other while enjoying camaraderie in some of southeastern Pennsylvania’s more beautiful locations.

We hold monthly Dutch Oven Gatherings (DOG) from April to October and also demonstrate Dutch Oven cooking techniques at area events.

Beginners are welcome to  join us at our DOGs.  Click here for our Monthly DOG details.  Let us know if you are coming via Facebook in case of cancellation or change of location.

Membership is free.
